homepage_erweiterteApart from regular childcare services, Heidelberg University also offers flexible childcare to its members.

KidsBox – a mobile room for children and parents


As a family-friendly university, the University of Heidelberg is expanding its range of flexible childcare options with the KidsBoxes. The KidsBox is a rollable closet that, when unfolded, creates an area for children to play in or for parents to change or care for.

The KidsBox can be used free of charge for childcare during university events such as conferences, seminars or celebrations, but can also be used for a longer period of time as part of a parent-child study. Two KidsBoxes are available for loan at the University of Heidelberg. On the Neuenheimer Feld campus and in the old town.
